Delivery Team

The Games Delivery Team represented the Scottish Government's interests in all aspects of delivery of the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games. For example, the Athletes Village, the Games Budget, Governance, Security, Transport and Infrastructure, for the Games.

The Games Delivery Team oversaw sponsorship and funding of the Organising Committee. We provided secretariat services to the Glasgow 2014 Strategic Group and the Glasgow 2014 Working Group.  We were also responsible for Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games and London 2012 Olympic Games legislation where it impacted on Scotland.

The Glasgow 2014 Strategic Group oversaw the delivery of the Games, and chaired by the First Minister. The group provided strategic direction to the Organising Committee and monitored the Organising Committee's annual business plans. Membership of the Strategic Group comprised of representatives from the Scottish Government, Glasgow City Council, Commonwealth Games Scotland and the Glasgow 2014 Organising Committee.

The Scottish Government was on hand to provide advice to the Scottish Commonwealth Teams as they prepared for the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.
